Another positive report for the East West rail link, bringing together the outer London orbital rail corridor that’s been discussed for as long as I can remember. The consortium’s latest report says the £134m project could be running 2 trains per hour between Oxford and Milton Keynes, also £64m secures Aylesbury to MK, by 2012.

Last year Government made positive noises, although public cash may be a long way away the report does suggest that £100k could come from developers – would be interesting to know where that figure came from, probably based on the overall sub regional growth, will read the detailed reports later.

And an update on the Stewart Brand post last week – the “How Buildings Learn…” book has arrived from the states already – its hard for an environmentalist when air freight gets your products into consumers hands so quickly.
